iSeeChange is a public media experiment that fosters multimedia conversations between citizens and scientists about how seasonal changes in the weather and climate extremes affect daily American life. iSeeChange is produced by Julia Kumari Drapkin in Western Colorado at KVNF Mountain Grown Community Radio as a part of Localore, a nationwide production of AIR in collaboration with Zeega, with principal funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
The iSeeChange Almanac is a socially networked weather Almanac for communities to collectively journal climate observations, questions, and decisions against near-real time climate information. The iSeeChange Almanac seeks to provide communities that depend on nature a dynamic crowd-sourced reservoir of information to help them navigate decision-making in the context of climate extremes.
Ultimately, by understanding a community's information needs in a localized question-and-decision-driven context, the iSeeChange Almanac presents opportunities for both public science and public media to better understand the value of information to communities and better tailor information to aid their decision making in the future.
